Children of political prisoner separated from father for 2.5 years

  • Story

After the rigged elections, like all non-indifferent Belarusians, actively followed the violence and lawlessness going on in the country against innocent citizens. He was a member of many telegram channels where he also actively discussed what was happening in the country with other people, including expressing his disagreement.
In the telegram channel “Punishers of Belarus” he added the data of his former police officer, now deputy head of the Frunzenski District Police Department of Minsk, with his data and residence address. Because he lived near me and had been seen more than once in dispersing rallies and violence against citizens.

One day he left negative comments about the officers and the assistant prosecutor of the Frunzenski District Department of Internal Affairs in Minsk. After that the officers of the Main Directorate for Combating Organized Crime arrived and took him away to testify, they also confiscated his phone, which did not have a password. We entered the telegram and saw a lot of negative references to employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and other people involved in repressions.

The phone was confiscated and a criminal case under Article 369 of the Criminal Code was opened. 
At the trial I was sentenced to two years and six months' imprisonment and sent to an open-type institution.

I have been in the penitentiary since August. As of today I still was not given a job. Given that a person in the correctional facility is on full-time self-sufficiency, it is quite difficult.
There are two minor children and a spouse in Minsk, who is currently unemployed.
